Patient :I have pain when breathing in mainly in my throat but if I strain myself I have some pain in upper chest throats and feel winded was wondering if this is a serious condition or something a general doctor can treat
Thank for your query.
Noted your history well and understood the concerns.
Pain on breathing in throat, pain in upper chest and throat along with feeling winded on straining indicate that you have respiratory tract infection along with lots of inflammation that is causing symptoms and can be treated by a General Doctor if it is of a short duration.
He/She may refer you for the investigations or refer you to the Specialist if he/she feels the necessity or on failed management.
Till then be careful about what you eat and breath; avoid any sort of allergens that can cause enhancement of symptoms.
I hope this answers your query.
